***FULLY BOOKED EVENT***
Dr Norman Doidge, renowned author of the The Brain that Changes Itself. This international best-seller made headlines when it discussed the way the brain can repair itself - known as neuroplasticity - an utterly fascinating notion that turned conventional thinking on its head.
Seven years later, Norman has interviewed several of our neuroscientists as part of a new book, The Brain’s Way of Healing.
Come and join a discussion about remarkable discoveries and recoveries of the brain, thanks to neural healing. Hear stories Norman has gathered - on the way people have alleviated years of chronic pain; improved the lives of those living on the autism spectrum; diminished symptoms of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, brain injuries and how we may lower our risk of dementia.
Norman and a panel of Florey researchers will chat about the way the mind, brain and body work together in health and healing.
